Day 65 Cody

Friday 23rd July

We had a well deserved lie in and it was lovely! Kathy and Howard both went off to work and we had the run of their whole house. We had such a great day being extremely busy doing nothing really! We caught up on emails, the blog, phone calls, laundry, battery charging and research of Yellowstone. All the above were long overdue as we have been starved of civilisation for sometime or at least it feels that way. It has been so nice to be in a home and a town. Its funny the little things you miss such as a carpet and a sofa! Kathy and Howard came home for lunch and were home again after work in the evening. We enjoyed cheese and crackers out in the garden while we chatted and watched the deer hiding in the grasses. They then cooked us a delicious steak meal with the tastiest mushrooms ever, this is the nicest restaurant in Cody!

We sipped wine and beer outside over a roaring fire until late with a full moon and stars overhead it was a great evening and a thoroughly relaxing day. We want to thank you both so much for allowing us to stay in your wonderful home and making us feel so welcome. We are happy to have been your ‘kids’ for a few days and wish we could have stayed longer! We are proud to have circled our home towns in your atlas and we hope we can return the favour one day.

We are heading up into the park tomorrow and may be there for approx 7 days without internet connection so don’t be thinking we have been eaten by a bear, we will be in touch soon!
